Cloud Computing

Home - Cloud Computing

At its core, cloud computing is simply computing services available over the internet.

And that’s about where it stops being simple! Your infrastructure, development platform and software can all live in “the cloud.”

For as many cloud applications, there also seem to be as many cloud providers. And not to mention a mind-dizzying array of acronyms and buzzwords.

Despite its complexity, the importance of cloud computing continues to grow, as there are many benefits of cloud computing for business. Some of the most common cloud advantages include reducing costs, increasing security, expanding their global reach and accelerating innovation.

The cloud provides opportunities to accelerate business processes and innovation that were not even imaginable a few years ago.

MATURITY POINT 1: LEARN AND PLAN

If you’d like to learn and plan for your move to the cloud, here are steps we recommend:

Cloud Strategy

Moving to the cloud does not have to be overwhelming! We have found our clients are most successful when they take a systematic approach, with steady eyes on the business need at all times. 

We help clients outline the key drivers, business case and actionable strategies that help the organizations adopt cloud computing as an operating model and a technology. 

Cloud Assessment

To understand your technical environment we can review your current applications and infrastructure as they pertain to cloud readiness, future growth, modernization, and your overall general cloud strategy. 

The assessment will be divided into several distinct functional areas – Infrastructure, Security/Monitoring, Alerts, and Audit, Governance, Applications, Development and OperationsWithin each area, we will provide context regarding Current State, Best Practices, Analysis, and Recommendations. 

This assessment will provide a general roadmap towards understanding your infrastructure and business requirements. It will also provide you an important resource in planning and shaping your cloud goals and decisions. 

Vendor Selection

We strive to be vendor agnostic and will review factors such as available technology, pricing and client preferences to provide a customized cloud vendor recommendation.

Vendor recommendations may include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, or a multi-cloud approach. 

 

Cloud Adoption

By having a Cloud Adoption Framework in place, you can facilitate a smoother migration to the cloud. It can help you build organizational buy-in, avoid common issues, move quicker, and ultimately meet your business objectives.

Our Cloud Adoption Framework will give guidance on six key perspectives common to businesses: BusinessPeopleGovernancePlatformSecurity, and Operations.

We will perform an analysis from each key perspective, identifying which business processes may need to be refined, where skills should be updated, and where there may be organizational misalignment.
